What is daytime wetting?

Problems with toilet training for urine and / or feces are common and can have a significant impact. For 4-7 year olds is daytime wetting in about 7% of the children an issue and it is an important psychosocial problem. The problem may persist into adulthood. Besides the psychological effect on the welfare of children and their parents, there are also social disadvantages: an untrained child creates extra work and extra costs.

Various studies show, that children when toilet trained by guidance and various treatments, are dry faster than waiting till the child becomes spontaneously dry.Most children at the age of 30-36 months are dry during the day and at the age of 36-48 months dry at night. A child is able to be first dry during nights and after that during the day.

The length of a normal potty training varies from child to child, but you have to invest at least three months of training to learn your child to become dry. The standard toilet training starts first practicing with a potty and then stop using a diaper during the day. Afterwards stop using a diaper overnight. Before starting, it is important that the child feels open to start potty training.
